Date: Thursday May 1
This event will be catered
Admission is free, but RSVPs required
We are mixing it up this year, folks.
IPID hosts a yearly event that started as an outlet for capstone and professional paper presentations. In some schools, students working on development projects are required to present to a group of peers or clients. This year, we have decided to combine this year's Project Presentation Session with the Student Speaker Conference to create our IPID Student Research Forum.
It sounds fancy, but rest assured there is no competition or grading. This is a chance for any graduate, professional, or post-graduate student to exhibit research or work that they have done that is connected to international development. Unlike the Student Speaker Conference which had a prescriptive theme, we simply want submissions for the Forum to involve international development in some way. Each presenter will have between 10-15 minutes to present their work, followed by a brief Q&A session.
Prospective presenters must complete a simple online submission form that includes contact information and a summary of the presentation that can be included in promotional materials. Submissions are due by Monday April 14 at 11:59pm.
Admission is free, and the event will be catered by an area restaurant. RSVPs are required.
An agenda and bios of presenters will be made available one week before the event.
- Candidate's name, academic program and year
- The office for which candidacy is sought
- One paragraph describing your interests/experience in international development and your goals and aspiration for IPID and/or your role on the Board/Committee.
Voting in all of IPID's elections is open to all IPID members. IPID members are identified as those individuals on the IPID listserv. Voting will take place electronically using a survey link that will be sent out to the listserv, along with a voting deadline. All candidate biographies and IPID goals paragraph will be included in the online voting tool.
All election results will be posted on the IPID website and announced in the IPID email newsletter to the IPID listserv.
